From crochet.about.com - Easy Extra Long Scalloped Edge Scarf
For Fashion Wrap Styles
Pattern Designed by Sandi Marshall
This is an easy pattern to crochet. I designed this scarf in an extra long style, which lends itself to many possibilities for ways to wrap it for various looks ... or you can wear it with each side simply hanging straight for the longest possible scarf look.
This is the same stitch combination that I used in my lacy lapghan pattern that I had created in 1998.

Scarf Pattern Directions
This pattern is worked in long rows (there are only 7 rows to complete the scarf).
Abbreviations used in this pattern: ch = chain, chs = chains, dc = double crochet, sc = single crochet, st = stitch, sts = stitches
5 oz. worsted weight yarn (use any brand or color worsted weight yarn). To crochet the example, I used Coats and Clark TLC Essentials, Color: Spring (comes in a 4.5 oz. skein) - this pattern uses slightly more than one skein. Idea: If you use this yarn and if you wanted to, you could plan to use the remainder of the second skein for a hat or small handbag to match the scarf.

Size H crochet hook
Finished size: about 4" wide x 92" long
Gauge: a group of 3 dc stitches = 3/4" wide; 2 pattern repeat rows (rows 3 and 4) = 1"
Additional close-up photos, with stitches marked, along with extra explanation and hints
for beginners for the stitch combination that I used in this pattern:
Note: If you want a shorter scarf, subtract from the starting chain in multiples of 10 (the repeat is 10 stitches wide).
Starting Chain: Chain 364.
Row 1: Working in back loop only of each chain for this row, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in ea ch across. Note: The remaining loops will be used later when crocheting the last row. (363 sc in this row)
Row 2: ch 3 (counts as 1st dc), dc in each of next 2 sc, * skip 3 sc of previous row, then (3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc) all in next sc, skip 3 sc of previous row, dc in each of next 3 sc **, repeat the directions between * and ** as many times as needed across the row. Note: See the photo links above for row 2 help, if needed.
The following photo shows a close-up look at the stitches used in the repeat pattern of Row 3:
Row 3: ch 3 (counts as 1st dc), dc in each of next 2 dc, * ch 3, skip next 3 dc, 3 sc in chain-1 space, ch 3, skip next 3 dc, dc in each of next 3 dc **, repeat the directions between * and ** as many times as needed across the row.
Row 4: ch 3 (counts as 1st dc), dc in each of next 2 dc,
* skip the ch-3, skip next sc, then (3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc) all in next sc,
skip next sc, skip the next ch-3, dc in each of next 3 dc **, repeat the directions between * and ** as many times
as needed across the row.
Row 5: Repeat row 3.
Row 6: Repeat row 4. End off. Weave in ends.
Row 7, worked along the other side -
Last Row: With the right side of the scarf facing you, attach yarn in the remaining loop of the first ch of the starting chain on the other long side of the scarf. Working in the remaining loops, ch 3 (counts as 1st dc), dc in each of next 2 chs, * skip 3 chs, then (3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc) all in next ch, skip 3 chs, dc in each of next 3 chs **, repeat the directions between * and ** as many times as needed across row.
